This is Betty when she began her nursing career.

She is a long-standing member of the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO), together with its Community Health Nurses Interest Group, and its Independent Practice Nurses Interest Group.  Throughout her varied and extensive career, she also found time to volunteer with many charities and various work-related committees.

Betty’s broad life and nursing experience, coupled with her personal journey through a mental illness diagnosis, resulted in transitioning her career from providing critical care in response to illness and disease, to one where she attacks disease on its true “frontline” – providing education and motivation aimed at preventing the onset of disease in the first place. Today, as a nurse in independent practice, Betty provides a unique health promotion program that offers a holistic approach to living life well. Her primary focus is mental fitness and well-being to help minimize the need for intrusive medicine and maximize personal effectiveness with self, in relationships, careers and life as a whole.

A published author and certified coach, Betty works with individuals, corporate employees, business owners, teachers, healthcare workers and social service providers. She is available for one on one coaching, inspirational and thought-provoking talks, workshops and retreats all of which are empowered by her book “GUTS, Get Uncomfortable to Succeed – Embracing Health, Balance and Abundance.”

Betty is passionate about motivating people to take command of their life. Her programs focus on mental fitness and well-being through a holistic approach that transforms lives from Good, to Better, to Best! In doing so, she challenges her clients to be accountable for their lifestyle. She encourages them to be self-aware and take charge as she supports, guides and empowers them to achieve more.

Betty is committed to life-long learning and seeks to continually enhance her knowledge, skills and abilities to ensure she offers the best coaching and care possible to her clients.  As she says: “I believe we all desire to live a good life. Let me help you succeed at living life well!”
